Marc Lyr Req: The Yankee Privateer (Arthur Hale) (28) Tune Add: THE YANKEE PRIVATEER 12 Mar 03


Ok! So here is the tune that is used on Colonial and Revolutionary War Sea Songs and Chanteys Sung at Seaport '76 by Cliff Haslam and John Millar, issued as Folkways FH5275. This is the first time I've tried to transcribe anything in ABC. Can someone who is familiar tell me if this is correct? Now what do I/we have to do to get the words and tune added to the archive? Also, in the liner notes for the recording they state that they had no tune for the song so they used this "18th century tune"? Does anybody else recognize it? It sounds vagly familiar to me. I think I'm going to continue to hunt around and see if there are any other tunes associated with this song.
